Dubai’s Nakheel Harbour and Tower Metro Station Closure

Last Friday, the husband and I went to Dubai for a pre-anniversary date. We recently moved from Qatar to Abu Dhabi and the trip to Dubai would take about 2 hours via bus.

Travelling from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, you would have to get on a bus from Al Ghubaiba Bus Station and get on the E1 bus, which will take you to the Abu Dhabi Central Bus Station. You can also get on the E101 bus from the Ibn Battuta Bus Station, which will take you to the same bus station. Even though the Al Ghubaiba Station is much further than the Ibn Battuta Station when coming from Abu Dhabi, the bus fare would still be 25AED.

The friendly guys at the Metro Station handed out flyers informing the public about the temporary closure of the Nakheel Harbour and Tower Metro Station. The flyers briefly explain why the closure is necessary, with additional information on how to get on with your commute. Read on to find out more about the Free Shuttle Bus.

Day 1: When in Dubai

I arrived in Dubai on the 5th of June. It was just supposed to be a really short trip, just the normal getting out of the country to change visas and then come back. Simple, right? Not quite.

I spent the morning after my flight in the airport, waiting for the trains to finally start running, and posted an entry for the day. Before coming to Dubai, I made plans to meet with Christine, a young lady we used to live with in Cebu. I met her when she was still a sophomore in high school, I pretty much became a big sister to her and she is one of the best things that I had ever happened while I was in a previous relationship.
